This plane is the same as the Dynam C-47, just with a different paint scheme, right?

Yes. I think there are 3 different paint schemes, with very different prices right now.

Cool. Grayson has the C-47 for $119.99. Not a bad price for such a good looking, large airplane. I have been reading through this thread though and I am a little nervous due to the ESC/Motor sync issues a few have had. On the other hand, Grayson's storefront is only a mile from my house, so I would like to think they would take care of me if something went bad.

Can these things take off from short grass or is it pavement only? I don't have access to a paved runway near me, but the grass on the local high school's practice football field is always cut around 1/2".

Take off and landing from grass is possible. You'll nose over occasionally but the plane is really tough. Put some clear tape on the nose to keep it from getting stained with grass and dirt.

You can get a bare airframe and put in your own motors and escs for about the same cost if you are worried about the quality issues. Mine were/are fine and people tend to post when they have problems, not when things are working fine.
